My TV is only 3 years old and it now won't turn on. I have taken it to a repair shop, but he can't seem to find parts for it. I can't even find a technical support number to call so he can find the parts. Can you help??

Did the fuse blow? And when you put in the new fuse, did it blow right away.
For five year old TV, the common failure will be the power supply module and the processor on the main board since it will be running 24/7 even when the TV is off, this make it subject to all kind of surges and spikes (I kill the power my TV's when not in use using my power conditioner power switch).
The main board can be damaged also.
Repair shop will more likely to charge you $50 to give you the estimate, typical repair will be $150 and up plus parts.
Hi this is a very common problem, the problem is to do with the inverter board inside the telly this board will need replacing before the telly will work again, its not something you can do yourself as the inverter board requires the whole telly to be taken apart and the screen coming out of the case just to get to the inverter, shop around some of the tv repair shops and see what prices you can get,
if the telly is less than a year old then have a word with the shop you bought it from as you may be covered by warranty as you usually get 12months warranty.
if its older than 3 years then you would be better off replacing the telly as it wont be long before something else starts failing on it.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts.
im sorry i couldnt give you an easy fix but without getting this inverter board changed it just wont work, the board itself is not that expensive to buy but its the hourly rate that costs so shop around and see what quotes you can get on the cost of repair, check any warranty first as this fault will be covered
This is a familiar problem with Ilo, ours came earlier when there was still an Ilo to call and the set was only 6 weeks old.
The problem is probably with the circuit also used for the IR remote; the set-top buttons and the remote both are processed through the same defective circuit.
Jimmy's parts may have what you need to get control over your set:
They seem to have an unusual quantity of Ilo parts and may have bought the leftovers out of bankruptcy.
Good luck - just remember WalMart when you start laying out cash for their junk.
Hello pwilkers,This sounds very much like a vertical linearity/size problem; a malfunctioning coupling capacitor, a malfunctioning yoke transformer, or a problem in the vertical circuitry can cause this. I would suggest taking the TV to a repair shop because to troubleshoot this problem you will need a signal/pattern generator, an oscilloscope, a capacitor/inductor analyzer, and a multimeter. If you have these pieces of equipment this task becomes very easy, if not it is best that the problem be taken care of by a TV technician. I hope this helps,Thank you,Shuttle83http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com
The way to resolve the problem would be by replacing or repairing the power supply. If the TV does not power ON, needs to be unplug to make it work; those are symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I repair these power supplies, if you need further assistance write to email@example.com
Go into your audio menu and make sure you are on stereo and not SAP. This will take care of the spanish thing. ilo is a walmart tv. double check the warranty time. It may not be a year. But they maybe able to help you on a local repair shop.
If the picture was good before set went wrong then I would say yes get it fixed.
Frame fault is pretty straight forward for tv shop to repair.
New sets regardless of make will not last 10 years before they go wrong you will be lucky if a new set lasts 3 years before going wrong.
At the moment in the repair shop I work in we are scrapping off LCD & PLASMA that are under 3 years old they are very expensive to repair.
